Board says no to sin bins

THE CAMANACHD Association board has opted not to introduce 10-minute sin bins and three-point cautionable offences for the 2018 shinty season.

Several clubs voiced their opposition to the move and the board recognised that whilst there was merit in the proposal, it was also aware greater clarity on the implications and management for players, coaches and officials was needed.

As well as thanking member clubs and associations for their in-depth feedback, the board noted their intention to set up a working group to examine all options to enhance player discipline.

The working group will include representation from member clubs and officials and they it will report back to the Camanachd Association board by July.
